“This is His message to us”


A few days later, Mehera and Mani were sitting in Baba’s bedroom. “Baba didn’t leave us any message,” Mehera said regretfully, “any instructions.”

Baba’s departure from their midst had been so sudden and unexpected.

Mani said, “Yes, he did. Early on the morning of the 31st, he had that board [Hafiz’s] brought in.” They stood in front of it and read the three couplets together:

Befitting a fortunate slave, carry out every command of the Master
without any question of why and what.

About what you hear from the Master, never say it is wrong, because, my dear,the fault lies in your own incapacity to understand him.

I am the slave of my Master, who has released me from ignorance;whatever my Master does is for the highest benefit to all concerned.

Mehera said, “Yes, this is his message to us.”
